November 20th, 2013 5:02 am

The Arkansas River in Colorado is America’s most popular river, and for good reason. With trips ranging from family-friendly to adrenaline-pumping, there truly is something for everyone to enjoy whitewater rafting in Colorado.

The river is known for having exceptional trout fishing, including Cutthroat, Brown, and Rainbow trout, as well as some of the best whitewater rafting in the world. The Arkansas River runs parallel to the Continental Divide, winding its way through mountainous terrain that includes the highest concentration of 14,000 foot peaks in the lower 48 states.

If you’re looking to step up the intensity level a bit, then The Numbers or The Royal Gorge would be right up your alley. The Numbers (Class IV/V near Buena Vista) is the northernmost section on the Arkansas, offering tight channels, steep drops, and non-stop white-knuckle action through an amazing high-alpine environment.

Are you looking for a way to enjoy the beautiful Colorado scenery without any of the rapids? Then a Family Float trip would be perfect for you. With a minimum age of 5 years old, the Family Float (near Buena Vista) includes rafting through the “Milk Run”, just above Browns Canyon, and viewing amazing vistas along the Continental Divide.

Colorado river rafting definitely should be high on the summer “To Do List” for anyone interested in combining breath-taking scenery and world-class whitewater. Whether it’s breathtaking scenery while rafting Browns Canyon, adrenaline-pumping whitewater while rafting The Numbers or Royal Gorge, or family-friendly rafting through Bighorn Sheep Canyon, once you spend a day on the water with American Adventure Expeditions you’re guaranteed to leave with a lifetime of memories.
